If you're like me, you spent a portion of the weekend shopping for (almost) last minute Christmas gifts and baking ingredients.
Let's have a Repurposeful Monday without a Christmas theme. How 'bout we view a few decorating options using the classic, antique sewing machine stand?
An end table was created with a base and two
vintage commercial ledgers found at a flea market:
(Okay, that white poinciana on the
floor slipped in by mistake. Sorry.)
Did you know that you can 'age' wood with one simple
ingredient? Apple cider vinegar! Holly Lefevre of 504 Main
offers an easy tutorial on how to add an organic stain to wood.
I love how they used the wheel as a pot lid holder!
Using a printer's tray filled with trinkets
and memorabilia is a brilliant idea!
The sewing machine was removed from this base
and the original wood frame was simply painted:
Two repurposings in one - the machine
stand paired with a beautiful old window.
Those Pinnoccios aren't nutcrackers so
technically they're not Christmas ornaments!
sell round, unpainted table tops?
If you decide to have a glass top cut for the base, be sure
to extend at least 6 inches from the metal all around and opt
for heavy glass. A bevel trim adds an elegant touch.
